Classes

An engaged and educated membership is essential to the success of our cooperative.

We want to help our members be knowledgeable about the products they consume,  connections between food choices and personal health, as well as how to engage in environmentally sustainable practices.

To reach this goal, we are developing education and advocacy on topics such as reducing carbon footprint, understanding the cooperative model, and helping our diverse population learn how to access and cook healthy, local food.
